January 3, 2013

With the help of the community, Independent Bank’s Shelby Township office collected 247 cans of soup during their Chicken Noodle Soup Drive for Extended Hands. They exceeded their goal of 200 cans by 47. The donations went toward helping Extended Hands with items for their food baskets. Each holiday season, the organization packs 300 food baskets for the needy in the Shelby Township area.

Banking Office Manager Jessica Swanson of Independent Bank’s Shelby Township office said, “We appreciate the support of our community for this very important effort. The donations went toward giving a needy family or senior citizen food for the holidays.”

The drive started on November 5 and ran until December 14. It is an annual event, however, you can make donations to Extended Hands all year long by visiting their website at
